Launchy - Today's Free File
It seems like this series of application launchers just won't stop. In the comments for our post about the application launcher Colibri, Taylor mentions yet another launcher called, appropriately, Launchy. Being a sucker for this type of application, I couldn't wait to give it a try.
Launchy is a very slick application launcher. It sports a Vista-inspired theme complete with see-through glass edges, and is extremely small and fast. By default it only indexes your Start menu, however it can be manually configured to index any folder you like, and can even be told which file extensions to index.
If you've tried some of the other launchers we've recommended here but found them not quite your cup of tea, give Launchy a try.
